Whatever this Khania may have been to me in the past—if she was anything at all—that story is done with.
I had seen and heard too much, and this woman called Khania guessed that I had seen and heard.
Now they had been drawn, and between them, in her royal array, stood the Khania still as a statue.
What if Amenartas and this Khania, this woman with royalty stamped on every feature, should be the same?
Then she seemed to reflect, and stayed it in mid air, so that it pointed at the Khania.
But I could get nothing out of her except that she was the Khania—a person in authority.
Get thee gone to thy Mountain fastness and the Khania gives thee peace, and thy people their lives.
Leo asked the Khania what happened if there was a bad season.
She waved her hand to show that this matter was finished; then after long thought spoke again, addressing herself to the Khania.
It worked well, for truly there is no one whom I hate more than the Khania Atene.
